Cloud Catcher
Denver’s own Heavy Rock power trio, Cloud Catcher, have been forging their own path since May 2013.
The trio consisting of Rory Rummings on guitar and vocals, Kam Wentworth on bass, and Jared Soloman Handman on drums have spent considerable time crafting their own style of heavy cosmic rock. Cloud Catcher's riff driven and energy fueled performances have landed them the opportunity to have shared the stage with such notable acts as Acid King, DANAVA, Lecherous Gaze, Dead Meadow, Rival Sons, Black Tusk, Mondodrag, Lord Dying, and many more. In 2015, their debut album, 'Enlightened Beyond Existence' had caught the attention of the local Colorado heavy music scene. The album exhibits some of the finest heavy rock and roll submerged in psychedelia this side of the Andromeda Galaxy. In Spring 2016 Cloud Catcher signed to European record label, Totem Cat Records, and have plans to release their sophmore album, ‘Trails of Kozmic Dust’, due early 2017. Their sound resonates with those who worship heavy acts such as Captain Beyond, early Grand Funk Railroad, Sir Lord Baltimore, and Budgie. The trio summons thick, fuzz-laiden, mountainous riffs and sub-earthly jams which unite in crushing harmony. Cloud Catcher has received the esoteric "cosmic nod" and is unrelentingly wielding it in an attempt to pry open the mind's eye of collective
consciousness.

The Southern California psych scene is flourishing these days, with bands such as Earthless, Joy, Brian Ellis Group and Astra conjuring new magic from styles of bygone years. But no other band channels the colour, warmth and energy of the coastal SoCal scenery as well as San Diego's native sons Monarch. ”Two Isles”, their debut album, was recorded and produced by local glitterati Brian Ellis, adding a sense of focus and depth to the sound these guys have been developing throughout years and years of aural explorations while growing up together.

More than anything ”Two Isles” is the perfect head trip for easy summer days - or all those other days you wish felt like those. It's full of breezy Allman Brothers guitar leads gliding effortlessly on top of gentle, and sometimes not so gentle, prog-rock structures. Even when it get's blustery and heavy there's an airy, inviting quality to Monarch's music that makes you feel all fuzzy inside. With supreme musicianship they're somehow connecting the dots between classic California rock, prog, pastoral pop and the vivid, expansiveness of early 1990s British shoegaze.

Indeed these guys have created something that transcends sounding like a time capsule. While psychedelia might be the prism that everything is projected through, ”Two Isles” reveals the fact that this is a group of people who grew up on a wide range sounds available in the diverse San Diego scene: ambient, indie, math, jazz and whatever else was available to experience. It's about mood and texture as much as it's about the ROCK, and might just be the perfect companion for travelling somewhere, physically or mentally.
